Impromy for sustained weight loss
The world has binged on a gluttony of diet programs with an immediate impact but those with genuine longevity are as rare as a blue steak.
If you’ve dieted before, you probably enjoyed that ‘wow’ moment when you lost two kilograms in the first week and maybe even five kilograms or more over a month. But a few months later you were back where you started or worse.
Terry White Chemmart pharmacist Amanda Carracher has worked in Horsham pharmacies for more than 20 years and has seen such examples on countless occasions.
In more recent times, the highly respected pharmacist has also seen people lose weight and successfully maintain their new shape.
Amanda said the answer to sustained, successful weight loss was with an Australian program developed by CSIRO laboratories.
“The Impromy program is backed by the CSIRO and has a common sense structure,” she said. “It’s much more than a diet. “It’s a health improvement program that includes point-of-care testing to assess weight and risk factors such as cholesterol, blood pressure and blood glucose.
“The program includes meal replacements, high protein meals and provides ongoing support by our trained pharmacy staff here in Horsham.”
CSIRO tested the value of combining higher protein main meals with breakfast and lunch meal replacements in the form of shakes in the early stages of weight loss.
What this research had shown was that it could help to accelerate initial weight loss, blood pressure and cholesterol changes. CSIRO reported that recent research showed greater early weight loss predicted longer-term weight loss, making the meal replacement program a useful approach for weight control.
Amanda said the Impromy program focused on improving health through weight loss and good nutrition. “You can’t just walk in off the street and buy it off the shelf,” she said.
“It’s a consultancy program and you will need to answer a variety of questions about your health before you can start.
“You are also measured for weight, height, blood sugar and cholesterol levels.”
Amanda said once everything was recorded in the Impromy program, a diet would then be designed that took into consideration the person’s BMI and health.
“The program has three levels of support and you are constantly monitored for as long as you stay involved,” she said.
“It is thorough and people therefore might think it’s expensive but it only costs $49.95 to become a member and it’s easy to maintain the program.”
